Pommard lies in the south of the Côte de Beaune, and the wines are typically among the most powerful and tannic, providing a clear contrast to the lighter, more elegant wines from neighboring Volnay. The grapes for this wine are sourced from 65-year-old vines planted in limestone soils at a perfect southeastern exposure.

After being hand-harvested, the grapes are sorted both in the vineyard and in the cellar before partial de-stemming and pressing. After stainless-steel fermentation, the wine is aged in older French oak casks for at least 14 months.

Press Notes : 

The 2018 vintage was released and reviewed before the 2017. That vintage received 92 points from Wine Enthusiast - "A sense of freshness and iron oxide perfumes cherry notes on this wine’s nose. The same expressive fruit pervades the firm palate where fine tannins crunch and heighten the juiciness and freshness even more. It’s a joyous yet elegant wine.”
